A Place of Health | Meet the Staff
Milly Rodriguez - Front Office Manager
I come to A Place Of Health with over years 6 of experience. I started in the Chiropractic field as soon as I graduated high school. My first job I worked as a Chiropractic aide. I enjoyed working hands on with patients and engaging with them and, also being involved with their treatments and therapies. I grew a passion in helping others and pride myself in giving the best customer experience I can. I held many positions there learning all the aspects of running a Chiropractic and Wellness Practice. I am pleased to be able to call myself the office manager, here at A Place Of Health - Chiropractic. I love it here and all our patients.
Rony Quant - Massage Therapist
I was born here in South Florida and grew up in North Miami. I attended massage school here in 2012 and have been working in both the medical office settings, and also with athletes, which has taught me so much about what healing modalities are available. I have a strong interest in helping people reach their health goals. Since I was very young, I've had a knack for helping others feel better. Whether it was massaging my parent's feet after a long day of standing, or giving my sisters some relief by massaging their neck and shoulders, they always felt better afterward. Playing sports like football and basketball also helped me understand how the large muscle groups work together and that our bodies do have limits we need to be aware of. It was through an actual injury where I was introduced to full body massage and began to understand the healing capabilities that massage offers. I believe that good posture is imperative to a healthy body and try and help my patients achieve that through massage and exercise. I am very happy to work here at A Place of Health where I can utilize my knowledge to help our clients reach their full potential

I have enjoyed practicing many different modalities including, neuromuscular and medical massage. I have worked with many physicians and physical therapy offices over the years and know how to work the tissues to create healthy muscles without causing any discomfort to my patients. I also have been trained in prenatal, reflexology and lymphatic drainage. As I have a love of horses I presently work on them as well healing their injuries as I am a PEMF practitioner.

Vincent Mantou - Massage Therapist
Hello, my name is Vincent Mantuo. I am a massage therapist at A Place of Health. I grew up here in South Florida but went to college at Campbell University in North Carolina pursuing my degree in Kinesiology, The Scientific Study of Movement. As a former collegiate athlete in football, I saw so many of my teammates injuries effect their careers and health. I believed I needed to find another way to help them and others that were injured to recover their health back. as quickly as possible. This belief led me to pursue massage therapy as I had seen the benefits and personally experienced the benefits, body work can achieve.
After graduating from American Institute for Massage Therapy, I attended a specialty therapeutic bodywork school called Structural Energetic Therapy for 3 additional years. With this higher degree of education I was able to synergistically blend that knowledge with my Kinesiology training and education to help rebalance my clients so they can attain a higher degree of health, recovery, and over all balance.
I look forward to meeting each of you and will always do my best to give you the highest quality massage to allow you to feel the best you can be.
